Lots to see and if you enjoy people watching you will not grow tired of watching the number of people who flock to this piazza at the Uffizi. There are also restaurants and art at every turn.

This has been the hub of political activity for centuries. It hosts the replica of the famous statue of David by Michelangelo at the same place where original was installed. The visit is combined with the visit to the Loggia dei Lanzi on the right.

will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can

dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
experience the rare beauty of the capital of the
Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio
